Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop October 2020 | Sponging Technique with Life is Beautiful

Welcome to our monthly Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that have achieved the Stampin' Up!® bonus of the Maui trip. We want to celebrate this achievement by organising a monthly hop which helps us to continue to inspire you creatively.

You may be starting here or have come from someone else's blog - either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed - so if you are looking for a demonstrator these are top demonstrators in their country and would love to look after you with your Stampin' Up!® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin' Up!® teams.

Today I decided to do one of my favourite card techniques. Sponging with our Stampin' Up!® daubers. I saw this photo on a friends Instagram. She took the photo in Germany where she lives. It straight away inspired me to think of how I could replicate this look.

What stood out for me is that beautiful gradient of the white to the purple then navy and black. So beautiful! Here is my take on the card - 

I used Purple Posy, Night of Navy and Memento black and sponged them. I then stamped it with versa mark and then sprinkled some embossing powder to create the stars. Another fun technique for creating your own sky or background. I then added the trees at the front from the Winter Woods and Life is Beautiful Stamp set.

The sentiment is embossed in white with the sentiment from the Life is Beautiful Set.

Not a style of card that I do often, however I had so much fun! Let me know what you think and whether it inspires you to case this card. I have the products listed below if you wanted to purchase any of them through your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
